State of the Net 2016 to be held in Trieste on October 28th-29th

Today we’re glad to announce that State of the Net 2016 will be held in Trieste (Italy) on the 28th and 29th of October. You can register and book your seat today.

We are happy to be back in Trieste and in Friuli Venezia Giulia, after the 2015 conference in Milan!

On Friday, October the 28th we will host a preview with the participation of local institutions of Friuli Venezia Giulia, while on Saturday the 29th we will have the international main event. We will update you about the program, the speakers and all the other details in the next few days.

Facts.” will be the main theme of State of the Net 2016.

While the open internet allows for the best fact checking ever available, many are trapped in echo chambers where lies keep bouncing around until they sound like truth and resonate with their beliefs. The press is under pressure and sometimes willing to trade quality and analysis for attention. All this is affecting how we decide, vote, participate in public life.

And while people struggle with facts, machines are becoming very good at processing reality and finding new meanings: from storing “truth” in the blockchain to develop artificial intelligence able to interpret and predict our world and drive around town.

State of the Net 2016 will still be a free event, thanks to the support of our great partners: the Autonomous Region Friuli Venezia Giulia (co-organizer), Insiel, PromoTurismoFvg, Autovie Venete, Fondazione CRTrieste, Trieste Port Authority and many others that we’ll be announcing soon.

Please register now to State of the Net 2016 and remember to use the hashtag #sotn16!
